Brief Answer:
Benign thyroid cystic / colloid nodule.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma'm, Hi! Benign thyroid nodules, which are usually collection of colloid material and appear cystic on USG or MRI are a very common finding and nothing to worry. They do not usually interfere with thyroid function and are not known to be notorious for anything. Still to be double sure few recommendations are there.
1. please check her TSH/FT4
2. Please get FNAC of the thyroid nodule done.
Regards!
